Just found out I have a fucking cavity. I've never had one before and my gf is trying to tell me they hurt like a bitch when they fix it (I think she's agging me on).

Any advice? Laughing gas or just take the needle to numb the pain?

Oh, I hate going to the dentist too. That really can't help.

Route canals can be dealt with, Routt canals cost almost 10 million bucks and leave you without a starting corner.

Stay away from barge routes and you shouldn't get hurt.

Jesus...

It's a cavity, not a root canal.

The dentist is going to drill and fill for three minutes and be done with it.

Quit being a ****ing pussy.

I had all four wisdom teeth out at once, threw the Motrin the Army dentist gave me in the trash and went out for steak and vodka that night.

Are you serious? A single ****ing cavity? And it's depositing sand granules in your vag?

Cavities are not root canals. That being said, root canals don't hurt at all because they yank the nerve out.

First of all, a "cavity" requires a FILLING, not a root canal.

And second, dental technology has come a LONG way. I've had 2 root canals done in the last 3 years and they don't hurt at all.

The shots they give you are more unpleasant than the actual root canal.

Yep. If you don't believe it ask anybody with cancer if they've ever had a shot of novocaine.

First off, we don't use Novocaine. Haven't used that since the early 1980's. We now use Articaine which is somewhere in the neighborhood of 20 times as potent as an anesthetic as Novocaine. I've probably performed over 2000 root canals in my 20 years of practice, and have had maybe 10 people that had trouble getting numb. Those people were all severely abscessed (swollen) when we did it as well. Root canals are easy as pie, just let the dentist know that you'd rather be number than not. You may be numb for 5 hours, but you wont feel shit.

I've had two, and this is pretty much my story. And, even though you won't feel shit for a few hours after you're done, follow the dentist's orders and go ahead and take some Advil before the numbness wears off.

My last one I had to had a "tap" in my jawbone, below the tooth. But the procedure itself was simple and painless.

It doesn't hurt nearly as bad as extraction, it's not a big deal really. Oh and $120 for a route canal? is this the neighbor with a pair of pliars?

What most people don't know about dentists is that they never work on patients in school. The first live experience is when they open the doors of the practice. That's why I never go the Dentist.

That's not true. Our school of dentistry does perform work on actual patients and hospital employees at highly discounted rates.
